It is a fascinating and complicated process when bees reproduce. A queen is produced in a particular cell in the honey comb. A virgin queen who survives into adulthood without being killed by her rivals will take off on a mating flight with half a dozen male drones. When a 'lucky' bachelor sticks his genitals into the queen, they explode and fall off. The drone dies and his genitals will serve as a 'lid'.
